History

 

Blue Lantern Learning was created to fill a need in services for children in Southern Manitoba who are facing behaviour and/or learning challenges. Long wait lists for funded programs in addition to a relative scarcity of behavioural intervention for various diagnoses are leaving many parents feeling lost and alone in dealing with the unique learning needs of their children. Blue Lantern Learning strives to fill that gap with various solutions based on the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis in order to help families and children thrive. We want to "light your child's path" of learning and growth.

 

Mission Statement

 

Our mission is to have our trained and professional staff provide friendly and caring intervention for children struggling with behaviour and/or learning challenges. We want to help children find and follow their individual learning paths to become the best they can be.

 

Vision Statement

 

Our vision is to provide state-of-the art behavioural intervention for children who are facing behavioural and/or learning challenges. When children are learning effectively, challenging behaviours reduce and quality of life improves. We strive to be transparent in our procedures so that parents/caregivers are aware of and have contributed to goals set for their children and are able to see the progress being made. We value parents/caregivers input into our programming and actively seek their feedback regarding our processes.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity Statement

At Blue Lantern Learning, we honour and value diversity, equity, and inclusiveness. We appreciate everyone for their uniqueness. We recognize there is strength in diversity. Our teams  include the families and the children we provide services to as well as any other professionals involved. Collaboration between team members is a key component of the vision of Blue Lantern Learning. By requesting and respecting all team members’ input and perspectives in the creation of individualized plans for each child, we can truly light a child’s path to reach their full potential.  

Actions we are taking to ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion are:

  1. We strongly believe in building capacity within communities we serve. Building capacity means that we are developing knowledge and expertise regarding Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) within those communities while simultaneously respecting the communities we serve and incorporating and reflecting their local knowledge and culture. Practices we engage in to achieve this are:

    • Including team members from the communities we serve to ensure we are respecting and honouring those communities.

    • Developing local expertise in communities we serve, by supporting candidates from those areas interested in certification in ABA and professional development and growth through supervision, mentoring, and internships.

  2. Considering and respecting the cultural context for the child as part of the development of an individual plan to create the best path of growth for the child.
